Easting Disorder Clinic Changes Name After Multiple Malpractice Suits

People in St. Louis who are seeking treatment for an eating disorder need to be very careful about the facility they choose. A simple online search will result in many different options, but they aren’t all as good as they appear. For example, Castlewood has recently changed its name because of a history of multiple malpractice lawsuits.

People will find the new clinic under the name, Alsana, which comes from the Latin word that means, “total health.” Is the name change reflective of a change in care? That question has yet to be answered.

Some are calling the name change deceptive, whereas the company’s CEO, Jennifer Steiner, claims that the treatment they offer today is nothing like what it used to be. Even so, there are many patients who claim to have gotten the best of care under the facility’s former name.

There may be an entirely new team of practitioners working at Alsana, but it’s difficult to say what this will mean for the future. The program’s administrators are hopeful; so much so that they have expanded and opened up ten more treatment facilities.

As your St. Louis medical malpractice attorney, we want to advise you to use caution before committing to a program with a history of lawsuits. If you do suspect that you have been a victim of malpractice, get legal help right away.
